Truth is I have agoraphobia in the area I’m stuck living in, so I socially distance anyway. Healthy or not, I’ve learned how to cope with chronic isolation, and I have reasons for being here. I take a break and go to the bay area every several months for a couple weeks just so I can go out and do things without anxiety. Due to COVID, I can’t get out of here now. I’m not enjoying anything about this whole thing, but hopefully society will make some changes for the better when this crisis eases. It’s bringing to light so many injustices.
